The importance of non-toxic dentistry

I often talk with my clients of the importance of detoxification and leading non-toxic lifestyles. Things like eating organic whenever possible, painting with non or low-VOC paints (see http://www.homegreenhome.biz/products/paint.html for a local selection), not using those synthetic air fresheners - you know the types you plug in to an outlet or stick on the wall - those things load your body with toxins that it then has to process and eliminate. Anyway, dentistry is one thing that I always mention in these discussions because although regular trips to the dentist's office are important for your health, they're also one of the best ways to get some serious toxins into your body.
But you have choices, because there are holistic dentists who won't use toxic materials in your mouth.
The September '09 issue of Experience Life magazine (experiencelifemag.com) has a great article about holistic dentistry including how to find a holistic dentist for yourself.
If you have teeth, it's worth a read.
